Previously on Lost ... the band
I heard a short story on NPR this weekend about a band called Previously on Lost. Every week, they release a song that recaps each episode of Lost. The band members are Jeff Curtin and Adam Schatz, and they record their songs on Kiss My Arzt Records (ha!). Curtin says they pick the major theme or event of the week and sing about it. One of the funniest songs I heard was for the Desmond-centric episode a few weeks ago when he almost had an aneurysm. It's called "Be My Constant". Curtin says that song is about "love and electro-magnetism".
The style of music is, um... unusual. It sort-of sounds like The Wizard of Oz munchkins meet They Might Be Giants. Or, as their MySpace page says, it sounds like "Every language spoken at the same time." They're definitely fans of the kazoo.
Previously on Lost's first live performance was tonight at 8 PM at the Knitting Factory in NYC. There will be a 7-piece band singing this entire season.
